    Look up "parenting prep" on FB lots of good tips for sleeping and you can also ask questions.

    Toddler bed is on its way

    I have a referral but my GP knew nothing about the sleep school so I'm going to see a different GP who is also knowledgeable in children's health etc

    No judgement im sure all of us have been through something similar.
    My son was a great sleeper until the teething started and then he would take weeks to settle back into a routine. I ended up sleeping on the floor next to his cot for 2 weeks hoping that if i just put him back to sleep each time he would get the picture and just learn to sleep! he never really did. i ended up brining him into our bed... which has only made things worse. 8 months later he is still in our bed and i wake up with a foot in my face every few hours!
    he is now 19 months old now and starts the night in his cot but by 1am he is in the bed.
    I paid a baby whisperer to come out to my house- i was really at breaking point. she spent the day at my house and she couldn't get him to sleep. He cried and cried and I tried calming him and he just wouldnt sleep. So $400 later i was back at square one. I tried her technique for 1 week with no progress.
    Im now going to just try comforting him in his own room and not brining him into our bed... even if it means im up half the night. one if us will have to give in eventually, and i hoping its him!

    It's just awful right now every second week DH does night shift so I'm with all 3 alone. Tonight DD was screaming at my legs and wouldn't let go.
    Running on empty...

    Make an emergency appointment with your local child health nurse? They have good links with the Ellen Barron Centre. I got into the centre after only a week and a half wait. It will be REALLY important for you not to underestimate the impact that it is having on you, your child, your other children and your partner. They need to know that your partner routinely works away and that you are trying to cope on your own very often....oh, and that you are sleeping on the couch too.

    I believe that as women we tend to minimise our own needs because we are more used to offering help than asking for it...but, if you are really honest about what is happening with your Dd3 then you should be given a high priority to get in to the Ellen Barron centre. Same with the child health nurse...let them know you are desperate for an appointment...ask the receptionist to get a nurse to call you back if need be and then go from there.

    And, POO to your husband for allowing you and Dd3 to sleep on the couch while he is in the bed. He needs a really good kick up the butt.
